    Any additional comments?

    I admit I like sweet predictable romances. Well, not too predictable, but only in a sense that I want to know the story has a good ending. It reduces the stress when I already have enough of it in my life so reading has to be something sweet and without stress and this book certainly is. I love the begining of the book and how cleverly Ava puts the two in the Duke's room. I wish she had added a bit more difficulties for excitement in the book but then the story is still good without it. A good light read.

    After putting her life on the line to protect classified intelligence, military psychologist Mia Kensington is on a cross-country road trip from hell with an intrusive save-the-day hero. Uninterested in his white knight act, she'd rather take her chances without the ruggedly handsome, cold-blooded operative who boasts an alpha complex and too many guns. Colby Winters, an elite member of The Titan Group, has a single objective on his black ops mission: recover a document important to national security.

    Story

    I saw the reviews but since the book was on sale I decided to take a chance. I admit there are some steamy sex scenes but the story is a bit flat. The hero falls for a girl he does not even initially find attractive but then sees how beautiful she is within the first chapter. The lovesick behavior takes place shortly after that. It is very unbelievable since she does nothing to strike this heat within him especially since he is made out to be super attractive and desirable and has women supposedly throwing themselves at him. I just did not see personality or physical attributes that made her that irresistible for the hero. Beyond this point though the Columbian Cartel is taken over and first and second men in command are taken over in their own property AND country by a handful of seals. Yes. You heard me correctly. If it were that easy, the US can wipe out the drug lords all over South America with just a handful of seals. Unbelievable story, unrealistic scenes and poorly developed characters. Stay away is all I can recommend.

    I got this book on sale and am glad I did. In any case, this book is well worth the point even if not on sale. What you see in this book is good character and story development . The story is heartwarming especially when everyone in the hero’s town began accepting him into their lives when they have every reason not to. The bullet in the head gets solved much too simply for my taste and without much effort at all but the rest of the story ties neatly into each other creating a very nice and easy listen. The narrator does a very good job in this western historical as well.

    Story

    Just finished reading this book earlier today and have to say after reading it, I did not spend any time thinking about it at all. What that tells me is that even though the story was good, it lacked the necessary appeal to make me think about the book once I was done. The story lacked what is needed to have it standout amongst all other books in its category. So yes. I was somewhat entertained when I read it but will never read it over again.

    I really enjoyed that the heroine was not made out to be a super smart person disguised as a beauty queen. Even her success in politics was not made super special but believable. Had JL done otherwise, it would have ruined it for me. But this book made both the hero and heroine real with real issues and shortcomings. A very well written book and a definite must read.

    After rebounding from a broken engagement and relinquishing her job in sports PR, the irrepressible Waverly Bryson has a new man, a new career, and a new lease on life. Her part-time gig as an advice columnist has proven to be as entertaining as it is affirming, and her fledgling greeting card line, Honey Notes, is off to a promising start. After a series of disastrous romantic rebounds, she has settled into a long-distance relationship with handsome Jake McIntyre.

    Story

    I felt the characters were in love with each other so quickly, but then not only neither one of them hinted or verbalized liking the other person, their actions drove each other away even further. Can’t explain these two characters any other way but to say their love expressions were inhibited. They did not say what they felt and then to fix her errors quickly, the heroine acted a bit crazy trying to track the hero to tell him in person how she truly felt. I have mixed feelings about this book. I enjoyed reading it at the same time I saw so many faults with it. I know, I know. I sound retarded now, but I liked many moments especially some of her reader’s dating stories which made me laugh out loud. But then either of the main characters acted stupid or said something stupid that turned me off. If you purchase this book just expect it not to be a great read.

    A blue-eyed innocent on the outside and a shark on the inside, dressmaker Sophy Noirot could sell sand to Bedouins. Selling Maison Noirot's beautiful designs to aristocratic ladies is a little harder, especially since a recent family scandal has made an enemy of one of society's fashion leaders. Turning scandal to the shop's advantage requires every iota of Sophy's skills, leaving her little patience for a big, reckless rake like the Earl of Longmore.

    Based on how the last book ended I imagined the hero to be pursuing the heroine in this book. Not so. She goes as far as getting naked in front of him while changing into her gown. Can’t get any more obvious than that. If I were the Earl, I would have wondered much more than he did about her innocence. The story, however, was still very engaging and her being forward did not detract too much. I can not give this book a 5 star but a gentle 4 suites it well.

    Although the English king tried to wrest it away, the Highland Targe - ancient relic and protector of Scottish lands - still lies safely in the hands of clan MacAlpin. But for how long? Jeanette MacAlpin trained her entire life to become the next Guardian of the Targe, but that duty has now fallen to her cousin Rowan - a duty Rowan can't seem to master. Fearful for her clan's future, Jeanette seeks the solace of a sacred wellspring, and there encounters tawny-skinned Highland warrior Malcolm MacKenzie.

    Story

    I loved the mixture. Very passionate love scenes, even when it was just a kiss. The hero is a typical man, ruled by desire and can’t stay away from the heroine knowing he can’t stay with this clan. The heroine is very willing to take what she can from the hero even if it means he will take her innocence and leave. That was the only part I had a hard time believing since times were not so easy on those who lost their virginity outside of marriage. I absolutely enjoyed listening to this book, even though I don’t believe in supernatural powers. So keep an open mind because this book will not disappoint.

    Two characters are noblemen and the third is a half brother to one. Very well written book but the characters, even supporting ones, are ALL superbly written and they make up some of my most favorite characters of all times. This book is a must read for anyone who loves a great written historical romance. Do not see any other books by Laura London on Audible but would love to see an entire story written about the “Cat” character (very intriguing).

    Ok. Maybe I am an idealist and true, it’s not possible to keep all readers happy, but what the hero had to sacrifice at the end was quite unlikely for that time. I also found the heroine’s fit of temper toward the end and fleeing as childish and immature. I felt that my intelligence got insulted with that ending. Having said this, I admit I am a Julia London fan and believe overall this book was a well-written book if you can overlook the ending. So can’t say I recommend this book over some of her others posted on Audible, but still worth a credit.

    It was such a surprise to read the book and find it so wonderfully entertaining. I always look at amazon reviewer’s feedback prior to purchasing because they are not influenced by the narrator’s performance. As we all know a narrator can really make a book or ruin it for all. When I saw the high ratings, I decided to give the book a shot. I very much enjoyed the story and liked the push and pull between the hero and heroine. The story was completely believable and although I am not a huge fan of Ann Flosnik, I though her performance was okay. The book does not contain complicated characters or a clever plot, especially since I guessed who was behind all the mystery prior to the unveiling, but overall I still enjoyed the story very much, enough to finish it all in one day.
